Keep in mind that if you paint outside you should still use a resperator. :idea: depending on how you heat your shop is a issue too. If you heat with any open flame or wood stove you need to have good ventilation or you will find your shop in a million pieces.

Ignore this advice if you value your health. Sorry, Clark. This is just unacceptable in light of all known facts regarding modern paints.

Let's end this thread here.

This is a topic with strong opinions and it won't get settled here.

Using any type of paint or chemical that has clearly been known to be a health hazard must be handled with extreme care. As warmer weather approaches and many are starting to do paint projects, may this be a warning to all.

THANKS AGAIN TO ALL WHO WEIGHED IN WITH COMMENTS--THEY ARE APPRECIATED.
